The Ides of March Reviews

Philip Martin
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

I left the theater feeling I had gotten exactly what I'd expected, but wishing I'd seen a crazier movie, one where those twin Iagos, Giamatti and Seymour Hoffman, had done more than worry in the wings.

I'm so convinced that Clooney will eventually make his Huge, Important Film About American Politics that it's odd to me he's made this one: his small, entertaining film about American politics.

The Vine

As a portrait of power, hubris and the systematic corruption of integrity, The Ides of March makes for compelling viewing. It's well-crafted, wonderfully scored and solidly acted across the board.

Tom Clift

A terrific political drama that growls with low tension and the cynicism of the disillusioned.

Simon Miraudo

Like the charming, inoffensive candidate with some great ideas and an impressive brains trust...[it's] more than capable of spouting some mildly-inspirational truisms about the nature of politics and looking good in a suit while saying them.

A gripping political drama in which loyalty, principles and integrity tumble like a house of cards when betrayals alter perceptions

What it lacks in sheer insight it makes up for in bravura.

Birmingham Mail

There's even a scene where a couple making love start laughing, because in the background on TV is Clooney himself... the very man who's directing them on the other side of the camera. What a strange brew that is!

Laramie Movie Scope

All the back stabbing and double dealing in the film is depressing and uninspiring. Nevertheless, I was impressed with the dialogue, the acting and overall slick way this film was crafted.

November 4, 2011


A dryly gripping thriller, as intelligent, professional and well-groomed as its director-star. Just don't expect to learn anything new.

Philip French
Observer [UK]

It's an intelligent, consistently involving thriller with the kind of unexpected melodramatic events that crop up in all US elections.

Clooney and cast are an absolute triumph, but even their solid and engaging performances can't mask the serviceable but thin and unremarkable plot that links them.

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

It's never quite as clever as it thinks it is, but ace performances from some of Hollywood's brightest talents, plus some tight plotting, make The Ides Of March a nailbiting affair.

A meaty, enjoyable adult movie especially if you still miss a regular visit to The West Wing.

Liverpool Echo

For anyone craving an intelligent tale, told without cinematic gizmos, The Ides of March is likely to get the bums-on-seat vote.

The acting is heavyweight, as are the moral questions about the personal cost of serving the greater good that propel the story with an unstoppable force.

Financial Times

A marvellously stable thriller that squeezes you so expertly you react in all the ways it wants.
